1. Maximise your positive impact

We encourage you to further embed impact into your strategy, operations and governance. We are the voice on your board to actively support your positive change, ignite discussion on how to steer towards more impact and guide you how to measure and manage impact. 

2. Work with an industry expert

Pymwymic has a track record of investing in early to growth stage impact driven food and agriculture companies and has a formal partnership with Wageningen University and Research to ensure in-depth sector knowledge. We are not afraid to get our hands dirty and offer a regenerative pilot farm to support business development.

3. Partner with an active investor

We take an active role in growing our portfolio companies to the next stage by offering network, strategic dialogue and financial planning. Experience with venture building has taught us the most common challenges to overcome.
